 Patriotic Folded Hot Pad Sewing Tutorial

Approximate finished size: 8″ x 8″

Note from Team NZP 

Preshrink  fabric by steaming and pressing, and steaming and pressing a second time, and then spray press and starch fabric with June Tailor’s Quilter’s Starch Savvy — press and starch, press and starch.

 

To make one Folded Hot Pad:

Note from Team NZP

 

Wonder Clips are ideal for our Folded Hot Pad! The multiple layers are not so pin-friendly and pinning layers may bend straight pins.

Now’s the time to use a Walking Foot – to prevent layers from shifting.
